SFCHINA is an ideal event for seizing opportunities in the growing finishing market

China remains the world’s largest and fastest growing finishing market. With the following favourable factors found in the region: growth of the Chinese middle class, continuous urbanization and industrialization, increased investment in Chinese high-speed rail, marine and shipbuilding, etc., foster the growth in all kinds of end-user sectors of the Chinese finishing industry, and hence generate immense business opportunities for industry players. Moreover, the increasingly stringent environmental regulations, intensifying market competition, continuous technology and product development collectively urge users to source the latest solutions and technologies that meet their needs. Exhibiting in SFCHINA will bring you face to face with high-level visitors from various end-user industries and across the buying chain—manufacturers, users, dealers and distributors who are eager to find the best products and services, partnerships and solutions.
